The Council’s Defense policy agenda aims to foster improved relations between Brazil and the United States to help ensure the growth of Brazil’s defense and security capabilities, creating opportunities for U.S. companies.

- Support Brazilian Congress approval of the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) Agreement and the Defense Procurement Agreement.
- Advance toward a bilateral defense program.
- Co-lead of the Commercial Partnership working group of the US-Brazil Defense Industry Dialogue.
